This book had the normal Andy Carpenter smart alec tone to it and was totally enjoyable until the Rosenfelt started bringing it together for the end. It really made very little sense with the ending and left me somewhat empty. I love the Andy Carpenter series and was anxious to try it. Unfortunately, blahh...
This one was on the lower scale of Rosenfelt books. The story was entertaining but ended badly.
Grover Gardner is perfect for the wise cracking Andy Carpenter. His voice varaitions for characters is good. I enjoy Gardner's approach to keeping you entertained.
If you are a Rosenfelt fan then yes. It had all the usual twists and turns, I just didn't buy the ending.
I thoroughly enjoy this series. A different hero Carpenter is a defense attorney who doesn't always win, nor does he know how to brawl, seduce woman and has zero cool. The narrator sounds like Larry King and he reads in first person, though Carpenter is relentless when he takes a case he does his cogitating while walking his dog Terra. I like that Rosenfelt leaves lots of familiar characters alive for the next story and has an excellent sense of humor without being completely uncouth. Easy to follow but not predictable. Well worth the money.
This is another great book by Mr. Rosenfelt. I have enjoyed this story as well as all the Andy Carpenter books. I look forward to the next one coming out.
The subtle humor weaved within the story.
These make a great joint listening experience for road trips. I look forward to more.
I love the Andy, Tara and Lori aspect of the series, and Grover Gardner really makes the books come alive. The big WMD unifying theme (without giving anything away) felt like it was bolted on to the book after it was almost finished. It reminded me of a National Lampoon article (
I am rarely seen without my headphones on and my iPod clipped on my waist. I love my books.
I just love David Rosenfelt's books. The narration is excellent, Grover Gardner helps bring the stories to life. This author is one of my favorites and I am always looking forward to the next one.
I am not trying to expand my mind. I am not trying to educate myself. I just want to be entertained. This series does just that.
David Rosenfelt's sense of humor and Grover Gardner's deliverance. A great mystery is woven with intelligence, self deprecating humor, an insight into relationships, a good fight for the good guy and, of course, he is a consummate dog lover.
Makes me laugh out loud
Good guy redeemed.
I have listened to all of the Andy Carpenter serires and this one continues to build on a great character, or group of characters, giving the reader an interesting, funny, feel good read. My favorite kind.
Laughed out loud many times
Hope Mr. Rosenfelt keeps it up. Not looking to forwad to Tara getting old....has happened to too many of my pets. But sure he will handle it with grace and wisdom.
This is one of his best books. Great and intricate plot - (you need to pay attention to the characters). Typical funny sarcasm. Well developed
If you like David Rosenfelt and Tara his beloved dog, you will enjoy this book. All the regular characters are back. It is a good court room murder mystery with a fun ending. Recommended for a good fun listen
I wish all narrators could do what Grover Gardner does - he reads the book. He doesn't indulge in idiotic accents or voices, he just reads the book - and he does it well. Since David Rosenfelt's Andy Carpenter novels are just darned good, that's all we need. This is fun, interesting, and well plotted. Even my non-mystery lover husband listens to Rosenfelt's books and thoroughly enjoys them. I want all of them on on Audible, and unabridged. I will listen and listen again and again - at some point it's a pleasure to listen to a good story with a good reader and "who done it" just plain doesn't matter.
